Speaking after bagging the award, Akintunde said “I am really speechless, to say I appreciate this priceless award is an understatement, it is just an awesome time to cap this year with this awesome reward.
“I had thought this year will only be about Covid-19 pandemic and #EndSARS but this is something to be cheerful about, it aptly describes the saying “all is well that ended well”.
“It’s often said that reward for hardwork is more work, so with this award, you have just made me to understand that people are taking note of our efforts here and there and I want to assure you that we shall do much more in the coming year 2021 and beyond.
“I thank the Federated Chapel of Ogun NUJ once again and sincerely wish everyone a memorable Christmas and Happy New Year.”
